London's Best Latin Roots Artists 2012

Latinos in London's editor has assembled our favorite London's  Latin Roots artists and bands playing from Afro-latin, Andean, Cumbia, Vallenato, Joropo, Llanero and Traditional folk music from latin america this 2012.  Browse through and check out what music we have been listening to and watching live performing highly active this year in different festivals and some of the top music venues in London.

We recognized the efforts of these artists and bands who delivered these projects with the difficulties that sometimes this means for an artist because of the lack of support from the music industry and still remain. For all our latin artists and latin music lovers please receive from us our sincere congratulations on the great work done this year, for the quality and the effort to playing on many venues and be some of the most hardworkers this year.  This is a chance to let them know the value of their work and continue our campaign to support the local music scene by attending concerts and buying their music, so you can understand the great job these ambassadors of Latin American & Iberian music made outside their own country.

This list is not a competition! is a recognition to our latin american people and those who love and are involved with latin culture, also an opportunity for you to understand the community, go out and see the bands, visit the exhibitions and know the artists and if you like listen their music or buy their art.  So, that's why we deicide to give a compliment to our local artists, those who are working really hard and make us proud; also more unbelievable a recognition for some of them who are not latinos but also are in love with our culture! Check it out!
